We are so jazzed about the spring and warmer weather, aren't you?! While some parts of the country are still getting the occasional snow, most of us are dusting off our t-shirts and capri pants and getting ready to jump out into the sunshine!
But wait - are you nervous about how your cold-weather hibernation has impacted your muscle tone? Hopefully you've been exercising over the last several months anyway, but maybe you're looking to really increase your focus now that you know your arms and legs will be on display soon. Not to worry - we're here to help!
This week we're rolling out some of our favorite exercises and workouts for your arms, to help you feel confident in your short sleeves this spring and summer!
